I would agree that a solid wrestler that can control him would have a good shot. GSP, or even Johnny Hendricks. 

Also, I would love to have seen Chuck fight Royce Gracie when they were both younger.

I think Trey has already taken the hardship waiver and is no longer on football scholarship.

Comment 22 May 2015

Kill is a good coach and the state of Minnesota has some decent talent, and with a few notable exceptions (Cornell for one) the state is locked down. I'm not sure they will end up in the top 25, but not surprised that they have a strong class.

I would probably bet on Boykin, considering that their schedule after Minnsesota is SMU, an FCS school, and a bunch of Big 12 defenses.

Comment 15 May 2015

Congrats to Gavin! Wish he could have been a Buckeye but I am excited to see what he can do on the big stage and Sparty will be a great place for him to develop. Pretty exciting for us Leipsic folk.

Comment 15 May 2015

I played at Leipsic. Had some great battles with HN in my time.

Comment 12 May 2015

Michael Bennett - He was a great leader. Always made a play when the team needed it, made everyone around him better. It was his play that allowed Bosa, Lee and others to put up great numbers. No doubt in my mind who the defensive MVP was.

When he fails to turn the program around and leaves them a huge flaming dumpster fire much like his two predecessors, he will be one of our favorites too!

I debated whether or not to use the italics.

I would buy your own modem/router if you haven't already. The ones that Comcast/Time Warner give you are usually garbage and don't work well at all. I pay TW for 50MB down, and got about 20 using their equipment. Bought my own and I get over 50 with it. Plus the wifi range was terrible, but with my own (albeit top of the line) router, my whole house is well covered.

On a different (and more serious) note...does anybody know what will happen to them since the mother did not care for them? Will they remain with her or will they have to be transferred somewhere to get the care they need?

My daughter loves Daniel Tiger, I think her head might explode when I tell her there are baby tigers at the zoo.

Ha, great name. I think I would automatically purchase music from a band whose name was a Simpsons reference.

Comment 10 Apr 2015

I'm mostly in to heavier stuff but if you like Mumford, I think you'd like one of my favorite bands - Murder By Death. They have like 7 albums so I had a hard time deciding what to post, but check this out:

Their older albums are definitely darker, which I like. Check 'em out.

For my money you can't beat the tone of an American-made Fender Jazz bass. 

To answer your question, it does make a difference in sound. But there are ways to make a difference on a cheaper bass. I know a couple people who have bought the Mexican-made Fenders and put EMG pickups in them to get a nice sound. But it's still not as good as an American-made Fender.

And as far as price, you pay for the quality of materials and workmanship (and the brand name to some degree). Not to say that a cheaper bass is no good, but yes generally the price will reflect those qualities.

Like others have said, I definitely recommend going to a store, pick up some basses, see how they feel in your hands. Plug them in and see how you like the tone, etc. You'll find the Jazz bass neck to be slimmer, which I like. The neck is also not as long as others, which I feel would be better for learning.

I would also recommend starting with 4 strings.

First: Metallica- Savage Hall in Toledo, January 1993

Best: tough choice, probably either Metallica or Tool. My favorite show was either the Big 4 (Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax) or Metallica's summer tour in 94 with Danzig and Suicidal Tendencies.

Best recent show is Murder by Death. Seen them several times, they are really really good.
